    BABY NUMBER 8!! name help for our last sweet girl!!

    Hey y'all!
    I have seven sweet kids and we are expecting our EIGHTH baby this October!!
    We know it is a girl, but I am all over the place with names for this one.
    Her brothers have very traditional names (a common thread in our fam), and their names are Harry, Bennet, George, and James.
    Her sisters are pretty similar, we have twins, Elizabeth and Tatum, and Marinka.
    Marinka is a much less common name, and I feel like that is the direction we would want to go with baby 8. However, we havent found the perfect match.

    Any Ideas???

    Since this is your eighth child and she's due in October why not have Octavia as a middle that would be cool. Anyway

    I was also going to suggest Octavia.
    It would be an amazing choice!!

    It means eighth and it’s also a stunning name. It also works with the other names.

    Beatrix was the first name that came to mind—I think it bridges the traditional Elizabeth to the unusual Marinka and the spunky Tatum.

    Other ideas:
    Adelaide
    Cleo
    Greer
    Inez
    Olive
    Piper
    Tallulah
    Willa

    Octavia is a great idea too.

    George, Harry, James, Bennet, Marinka, Elizabeth, Tatum &...

    I'm with the team-Octavia folk as that was (also) my very first thought reading your post! Octavia would be magic. Also first to come to mind were Adelaide, Phoebe, Ottilie & Viveca.

    I think names that are a little unusual and spunky but still have a nice vintage-type feel to them would work best with the names of her siblings...bridging the gap between traditional and unusual, so to speak. I also think that finding a name that doesn't repeat an initial would be nice too, though not at all necessary...
    Anneliese
    Olympia
    Cora
    Blythe
    Ottilie
    Amabel
    Vanora
    Theodosia
    Cressida
    Aurora
    Tamsin
    Flora
    Alethea
    Thessaly
    Saskia
    Willa
